Liam Clark's curator insight, October 11, 2013 10:36 AM

This short article is about the debut for the Dreamliner 787-9 Boeing. It literally just rolled out of the plane hangar, after being freshly painted. The new Dreamliner opened up a new source for airlines to grow routes throughout the world. The Dreamliner has fuselage stretched 20 feet. This new plane will carry 40 more passengers, and travel an additional 300 nautical miles, than similarly sized planes. Also this plane will use 20 percent less fuel, and 20 percent less fuel use. The 787-9 offers the same visionary experience as the 787-8, just better mechanics. This Dreamliner is offering the features of dim able windows, large stow bins, modern LED lightning, cleaner air, low cabin pressure, and a smooth ride

Bernard Witek's comment, October 14, 2013 6:45 PM
The Dreamliner is undergoing certain improvements in its newest model, the 787-9 Dreamliner. It will have similar features, however, they will all be enhanced for the benefit of the passangers. There will be more space, 40 seats will be compunded in comparison with the 787. It will use 20 percent less fuel, making it highly fuel efficient. Its fuselage is enlarged by 20 feet and it can fly 300 additional nautical miles in comparison with similarly sized planes. Despite the alterations, the 787-9 will still keep some of the efficient and new features of its previous model, the 787. Those features, among others are the dim-able windows, LED lighting, large stow bins, low cabin pressure, and cleaner air. The new and improved Dreamliner by Boeing is very comparable to its prior model, however, the main modification is the new planes better mechanics which will decimate the number of battery or mechanical prolems that plagued the Dreamliner not so long ago.
